Introduction to Personal Narrative (Grade 2)
Students write about and write like three narratives: Fireflies! by Julie Brinckloe, Chicken Sunday by Patricia Polacco, and Owl Moon by Jane Yolen. Students study the characteristics of the narratives and learn about concepts such as voice, descriptive language, clarity, and organization. Through the work in this unit, students learn how to use mentor texts to produce their own personal narratives.
